It was a fatal weekend on Oregon’s roads and highways. Oregon State Police say a Monday night traffic crash on U.S.. 26 about one mile west of Government Camp killed a 33-year-old Gresham man. The crash marked the third fatality for the big travel weekend, and closed eastbound lanes for about four hours Monday night. Oregon State Police Lt. Gregg Hastings says overall, State Police responded to many calls involving crashes and drunk drivers: "Early information indicates they were pretty busy; DUI numbers look like they are going to be higher than they were last year.  And we have several serious injury crashes that we responded to numerous high speed dangerous drivers that we contacted. We were pretty busy over the weekend. We had a lot of different weather conditions were we responding to; dry roadways to wet roadways, to snowy conditions early on in the weekend on some mountain passes.” He says since about 1970 there were nearly 260 total people who've died over the Memorial Day weekend holiday in Oregon. And during the past 25 years, about 54% of those fatalities involved alcohol.
